Life In Toronto: A Snapshot

The Greater Toronto Area is a mixture of high-rise buildings, sub-divisions of
detached homes, townhouse developments and rural communities. It is very much an
area in transition. For example, in some of the rural areas, it is not unusual
to see sub-divisions of detached homes and townhouses on one side of the road
and cattle and horses grazing across the road.
The communities in and around Toronto have done an excellent job of preserving their parks and green space. Some of the largest Parks include:
Edwards Garden in Scarborough
Centennial Park in Etobicoke
Chingcousy Park in Brampton
Toogood Pond in Unionville
Duffin's Creek in Pickering
At Black Creek Pioneer Village, just north of the Jane-Finch corridor, you will
find a restored 19th Century village depicting life as it used to be in Ontario.
Other attractions in the greater Toronto areas include the CN tower, Skydome,
the Air Canada Center and Wild Water Kingdom.
